Anthony M. Grimaldi

Please welcome my guest, illustrator/graphic designer, Anthony M. Grimaldi, to It’s a pleasure to have you here, Anthony. Please tell me and my readers about yourself.

Thank you, Janice, for giving me this opportunity to be on your blog.

My name is Anthony M. Grimaldi of JourneyManDesigns: Illustrator & Graphic Designer from New York City, a metropolis of successful and starving artists of every stripe and persuasion. I am content to be either, but never to be neither. I earn my living creating, illustrating, and designing for a variety of clients including individual, small, and medium sized businesses.

As an accomplished artist and published illustrator, the primary mediums I create with are pencil, colored pencil, colored marker, charcoal, pastel, pen & ink, and I am exceptionally adept with color and black and white. My talent is flexible and able to adopt different illustration styles as well, including realism, expressive, abstract, fantasy, cartooning, and children’s books. I possess 14 years of professional experience designing with Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and Fireworks to design posters, logos, and advertisements according to the exact preferences and specifications for a variety of deadline driven clients.

Most importantly, my technique of unifying illustration and digital art allows me to create with unlimited creativity and visual imagination, offering greater flexibility, variety, and choices, which I assure produces maximum artistic achievement and impact in every design.

I am technologically equipped to submit finished projects through email, Dropbox, Hightail, OneDrive, and WeTransfer, easily allowing me to work remotely.
